My worst was when someone was mining with me,i hit lava and he put 2 blocks behind me..i wasnt able to escape.the lava was to close to me and i died :sad.gif: lets just say that his house suddenly blew up recently after that
So whenever I encounter lava (this is usually in an abandoned mineshaft), I have to carefully get close to it and plug it up. I always creep as slow as I can, but the game laggs and I try to back up, but instead it pushes forward because that was the key command before the lagg happened. Then it laggs some more while I watched my hearts drain out
I was on multiplayer, with the lightening mod given to every player. I had been mining for an hour by myself since no one was playing. I then found some diamond, unfortunately before I could mine it some griefer came online and zapped me with lightening deep underground. I survived but I fell into the lava next to my diamond and when I typed in /back... all my stuff had been destroyed in the lava. The diamonds were still there unmined and my steel pick was long gone.
Very far down in a cavern, a huge one, i always have trouble getting back to my house, usually end up digging straight up and using my compass, but i was slowly getting the hang of it, but i kept finding more and more. I had to face a number of creepers and mobs while down there,but i was doing ok, had a stone sword. But then I saw some gold ore. I just had to jump down off this ledge and walk a little ways to get to it, it was near some lava, so i could see it. But as I start walking towards it...Creeper! right out of a side passage. And im like aw shi...maybe i can just run back go back up the ledge. I run backwards, the ledge is too high! I place a block and try to jump on it...but boom! And that's how i learned never run from a creeper.
I was playing on multiplayer server and i run god mode on it (from donating) so i usually don't bother putting much away for safe keeping. The admins started a mass mob killing event and i jumped at the chance. I find myself dead center of about 50+ monsters and i start seeing my hearts drop! i start to panic almost getting the /home command out.....I died.
